Andy Curlowe + Mark Slankard
Slankard’s evocative photographs from the Toplu Series capture the rapidly changing landscapes in Turkish suburbia, developments that Slankard began to document in 2008 after several years of travel to the country. His work reflects “landscape as a physical manifestation of those who live there, and their values and the power structures that basically shape the place.”
Curlowe’s paintings similarly explore themes of civilization and relationships between built environments and the contours of natural landscape. His paintings “confront the ever-changing relationship between these realms. Focused on suggestive landscape, my work is a fusion of curved lines and blurred contours of natural forms which counter the sharp geometry of industry and calculation. Whether in conflict or harmony, these works emphasize the power struggles between both worlds.”
